==Books!==
 
Noisebridge has a lot of them, they're mostly sorted, mostly sitting on our South wall shelf.
 
 
 
==Sorting==
 
The books are currently for the most part sorted thanks to Al. Purposed systems to help keep the books mostly organized, since enforcing rules at Noisebridge isn't actually feasible:
 
 
 
* Color code or number shelves and books. Books that belong on the "Yellow" shelf will have a yellow sticker on it.
 
 
 
==Library Catalog==
 
A library catalog system for Noisebridge would be awesome! Here are some requirements, adding items to this list doesn't actually mean anything.
 
 
 
====High Priority====
 
* Open source software with a nice license that wont fuck us over in the future.
 
* Web based.
 
* Quickly add books to the library via ISBN or bar code scan.
 
* Book search returns the last known location of a book (such as "Green Shelf" or "Book Case 8").
 
* Books can have a checked out status in addition to its last known location, date of check out should be displayed.
 
* Users can check out books without the need to register, as in when they check out a book it'll ask for a name and email, blank entries should be allowed as anonymous.
 
* Users who leave an email address will get a reminder email with a list of books they have checked out once a week.
 
 
 
====Low Priority====
 
* Integration with [http://openlibrary.org http://openlibrary.org].
 
* Book search returns results with descriptions and a cover scraped from some other part of the internet.
 
* Library database in an open format to easily export later on.
 
* Ability to use a barcode scanner.
 
 
 
===Possible Solutions===
 
* Writing it ourselves
 
* [http://koha.org/ Koha] Currently being used at [http://www.hackerbotlabs.com/ Hackerbot Labs]
